Con of Thrones is coming! In less than two months, we’ll be in Dallas, TX, celebrating all the fun, fascination and fandom of Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire with thousands of you all. But even more of you could be with us May 25-27, because we’re giving away tickets! That’s right, starting this week, we’re beginning a series of contests in partnership with Mischief Management. A variety of con badges will be up for grabs, starting today. What do you have to do?
We’re having a caption contest! As you can see in the photo above, Miltos Yerolemou brought his delightful Syrio Forel-inspired waterdancing skills to Con of Thrones last year and will be doing so once again in 2018, as part of the stellar special guest line-up. For our contest, we’d love for our readers to provide a caption to the photo of Miltos sparring during one of his exciting workshops. Something funny, clever, or memorable—stick us with the pointy end of your wit!
Who can enter? The complete rules are listed below but the short version is ‘anyone!’ This is a worldwide contest for a pair of Con of Thrones day passes (one day of your choosing, May 25-57). The deadline for your entry is Sunday, April 15, 2018 at midnight ET. We’ll announce the winners next Monday so you’ll know in plenty of time to start planning your cosplay and picking out which panels you want to attend!
Anyone is welcome to submit, all readers, even if you’re not attending the con this year. Frankly, we love a good joke, so we want to see what everyone comes up with for a caption!
How do you enter? Submit your entries to us in comments below, or tweet them @WatchersOTWall. You can do so as a text caption, or a link to an image if you choose to modify the original image yourself. Have fun, and the sky’s the limit. Be creative and good luck to all who enter!
